The daisy is the new symbol for the Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Associations across Canada. The daisy represents the challenges of Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus. The daisy's petals are cloven, thereby representing the various lesions caused by spina bifida & hydrocephalus. The heart of the flower represents the brain which, for many people living with spina bifida, is affected by hydrocephalus. The leaf and stem of the daisy are irregular and depict the unusual form of the spine and spinal cord of a person living with spina bifida. The beauty of the flower reflects the beauty of people living with spina bifida who, despite their challenges, live happy and productive lives.
